Below are some quick steps to facilitate a successful trip out on the water:

Create a To Do List

For spontaneous person, this can be a painful step. However, it will pay off in spades, if you actually implement it.

Luckily for the unorganized angler, there’s an app that can help big time. Actually, there are quite a few apps that will help reluctant outdoorsmen quickly maneuver through this important step. The one that seems to get the job done best is 2doapp, because it allows you to organize your many lists and store them forever.

In other words, once you refine a successful list for your fishing trips, you can store it for use over and over. Create lists for all kinds of outdoor activities and then save them for future use.

Before You Go

Preparing ahead of time takes all the stress off the day of the trip. If you’re going fishing in a boat, pack it up a day in advance. You can always keep it stocked with things like sunscreen, clean towels, extra clothes, recreational equipment and even bottled water making your prep time much more efficient.

Consider actually being at the location of your destination. Imagine what it is you may want or need during that time. Walk it out in your mind ahead of time.

Think about the weather, temperature, type of water you will traverse and other facets of the trip. Then you can prepare accordingly with the proper gear, weather equipment and more. Don’t make the mistake of being unprepared, and paying for it with your time and wallet.

Regardless of where you plan on going for a weekend trip, the value of a good plan to smooth the way will become very apparent once you begin to implement this process. Why not give it a whirl, what do you have to lose?
